You are cordially invited to the area’s only speakeasy style party in celebration of bicycling. Join WABA for an evening of elegance, card tables and poker chips, drinking, eating, dancing and good ‘ol times.
BikeFest is the Washington Area Bicyclist Association's signature fundraising event to raise support for WABA’s efforts to promote bicycling for fun, fitness and transportation; to advocate for better bicycling infrastructure; and to educate children, adults and motorists about safe bicycling.
Tip your top hats to bicycles by coming out to our fanciest event of the year. There will be live jazz and swing music to get your hips swayin’ and we are bringing in professional dealers and card tables to make your gamblin’ hands feel like Humphrey Bogart at Rick’s Café in Casablanca. Once your chips stack up after playing blackjack, roulette, craps and poker, you can trade them in for tickets to win bike-themed prizes.
BikeFest will also feature a silent auction with “experience packages” and vintage bike art, so come prepared to shop!
The BikeBuild is back again for the third annual contest. Local shops build their own creative, innovative, sometimes wacky build for the occasion and guests vote at BikeFest for their favorite bike. The shops will auction off their new creations and the shop winner will get bragging rights and a trophy.
If you’d like to dress up, please do. So gentleman, shine your shoes and don that suit and bowtie. Ladies, show us your highest heels and most sparkling attire. And everyone, practice those gambling hands as we get the dice rolling for BikeFest 2013.
A big thank you to WABA’s generous BikeFest 2013 sponsors: The Boeing Company, Chipotle, Signal Financial, CH2M Hill, Toole Design Group, and Entertainment Sound Production.
